I'm a newbie....but have been unable to find a thread on reducing pre-travel. I've done a modest trigger job and replaced springs with JP yellows, pull about 4# now which is fine.

Thanks for your help-dan

I should have mentioned it's a standard DPMS trigger/hammer group. Like I said I put in JP yellow springs and don't plan on fooling with them.
Thanks for all the guick replies ! dan

If the grip screw hole on the lower is threaded all the way through just install a set screw to adjust out the creep. Figure out were you want it and then add some loc-tite. If your lower is not thread just run a tap through tit. This is a quick and easy mod. Good choice not to cut or bend your new springs.

I made a set screw from a 1/4 bolt with 28 teeth and cut a slot for a screwdriver, also did alittle bending on my stock hammer spring and the end still sits on top of the trigger retaining pin.

Works good with no creep and trigger pull is a hair under 5 lbs now, which is prefect for me and didn't cost a dime.

The end of the spring still engages the groove on the trigger pin with the trigger pulled or at rest, hard to tell from the pic. I got over 400 rounds through it and the trigger pin will not walk out. I still get that little pop when you try to break it free by pushing on it.

I like your idea too, only one bend compared to my two
